One of the new films hitting theaters this weekend is Beast, a thriller that pits Idris Elba against a ferocious lion in the wilds of South Africa. It’s a different kind of movie for Elba, the five-time Emmy Award nominee, but it was a script that got his attention. He wound up getting so excited about it, he told us, that he was the one who recruited the film’s director, Baltasar Kormakur. (Click on the media bar below to hear Idris Elba)
